2013 Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellow


The Bray is pleased to have Tony Marsh working in the Voulkos Visiting Artist Studio as the 2013 Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellow this August. During this time he will have an opportunity to share his knowledge and experience as well as gain new ones.

In addition to spending time in the studio, Marsh will present a three-day workshop on August 16–18.

Tony Marsh earned his MFA from Alfred University in New York. He spent three years in Mashiko, Japan, where he apprenticed to potter Tatsuzo Shimaoka, who was designated a Living National Treasure in 1996. Marsh’s ceramic art has been exhibited across the United States, Asia and Europe. Examples of his work may be found in many private and public permanent collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Art & Design in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary International Ceramic Art In Inchon, South Korea, and the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto. He lives and works in Long Beach, California, where he teaches and is the chair of the ceramic arts program at California State University, Long Beach.

The Voulkos Visiting Artist Fellowship was created in memory of the renowned ceramic artist, Peter Voulkos. His family and friends established the Fellowship at the Archie Bray Foundation to invite a distinguished artist to work at the Bray each year. Peter Voulkos taught by example, working alongside other artists in the studio, fostering artistic exchange and dialogue, and nurturing mutual respect. In the same spirit, the Voulkos Fellow is invited to work in an environment that encourages interaction among the artists and the Bray community.
